30L Nano Tank

Hi all,

Just started my tank about 1.5 months ago. Just planted HC and have a few CRS and Neon Tetras.

The HC is growing, but old leaves seem to be turning yellow. I've started dosing NPK & Iron to hopefully have a garden of green. Probably need to get a testing kit for those elements. Not sure if I'm underdosing or overdosing. No CRS or fish deaths yet.

Also not having much luck finding grey rocks for the Iwagumi look. If anyone knows where I can get some in Sydney Australia I'd greatly appreciate it!

Details:
Do! Aqua 60 x 18 x 30cm tank.
3 x Up Aqua 60cm Stride LED lights.
Up Aqua CO2 system
Eden 501 with Seachem Matrix, Purigen (might have to upgrade as surface movement is stagnant in some areas).
10mm Lily Pipes
Dosing: Seachem Flourish(weekly), Excel(daily), NPK(bi-weekly), Iron(bi-weekly).
Up Aquasoil and Up Aqua Shrimp Sand

Feedback welcome!

Thanks.

I see you had the 45cm LED light... I guess it was not enough for this tank but do you think that light would be able to grow HC on the 45-F (45"x9.5"x6")?

45cm LED

Hi Genious,

Not sure, it's not very bright. It would be slow growth and no C02 I think.
